Urschel Says Despite Knowing Dangers Of Football: "If I Didn't Have Math, I Would Almost Certainly Be Playing Football"

May 15, 2019
Former Ravens & Penn State OL/PhD candidate at M.I.T. John Urschel was a guest on Glenn Clark Radio Wednesday. 

Among the topics he discussed were: 
-Why he wrote his new book "Mind and Matter" with the decision to alternate chapters about football and math
-Knowing what he does about the dangers of football, would he still have retired early if he wasn't pursuing a PhD at MIT?
-Given his extensive knowledge about math, can he come up with a formula that defines whether a fifth round pick who played for three seasons in the NFL was a good use of a pick?
-His understanding of why NFL General Managers (including former Ravens GM Ozzie Newsome) are simply looking for football robots with no other interests
-The appreciation he has for Ravens OL Marshal Yanda after playing alongside him
